The 72-year-old politician and businessman, who was director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, told Neil Business, Fox Business, on Thursday that investors should go out of the market and regenerate.

Here's an exchange between Cavuto and Stockman during the segment almost 8 minutes, where the business warned that the end of the easy money policies from the Federal Reserve would ultimately increase ill for a country hoping to get up on debt and get a trickle trick which grows deficit:
Cavuto: When is that day counting? I would like to know
Stockman: I believe we are here. I believe we are here because the Fed has given the best to buy bonds two years ago.
Cavuto: What would you invest in?
Stockman: I think you're going out of the market. The bond market, the stock market, puts your money in cash, put your money in Treasury bills, wait for the coming downfall because it will happen

Both of these schemes have been designated as a source of friction to markets.
However, Stockman has said that there is a lack of spans and economic expansion in the United States that makes history about it as signs that I'm supposed to be at hand. He says that easy money days can not continue and they have ramifications for everyone, arguing that the Fed must normalize its policy, at some point:
"My point is, it's still going on. We've gone on with this for 30 years because the Fed has been influencing debt – buying hands-by-hand temporarily. When Greenspan arrived , Ffed's balance sheet was $ 200 billion, at the top it was $ 4.5 trillion, "he told Cavuto, referring to former Fed manager Alan Greenspan.
"We need to wake up and smell the roses here. We are in the year 10 of the longest business expansion in history. We are increasing the deficit at the very wrong time. say it's $ 900 billion this year, it will be worth $ 1.2 trillion at the same time that the Fed begins to compile its balance sheet, which means they will dump bonds to the market, "he said .
